Kyle is locked up in his Coronavirus-resistant bunker in the suburbs, washing his hands every 30 minutes and wiping the shelter clean with Lysol wipes.
He’s convinced that some massive Covid-related inconveniences are coming down the pike, like empty arenas, overflowing hospitals, and general apocalyptic chaos. I’m more on the “we’re blowing this out of proportion” side of the argument, but Kyle’s stance is gaining steam with news that Johns Hopkins is barring spectators from D3 tournament games on campus.
“In light of Maryland’s recently confirmed cases of COVID-19, and based on CDC guidance for large gatherings, we have determined that it is prudent to hold this tournament without spectators,” the university said in a statement on Thursday. “We are not making any determination about other JHU events at this time; while we await further guidance from public health authorities, we will be assessing large events on a case-by-case basis. We regret any inconvenience to the families and fans of the players.”
Johns Hopkins will host a pair of games on Friday night as Yeshiva University faces Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Penn State Harrisburg battles Johns Hopkins.
Neither fans nor family members of the players will be allowed inside Goldfarb Gym during the semifinals on Friday and finals on Saturday.
Well at least people are taking precautionary measures. As such, I’m going to take the rest of the day off, due to concerns over Covid-19.
